Wicked Wildfire Read-A-Thon

Wicked Wildfire Readathon June 7-14

Wicked Wildfire Read-A-Thon – Overview

It’s time for the 5th Edition of the Wicked Wildfire Read-A-Thon, hosted by April and Pabkins at My Shelf Confessions, who also hosted the Wicked Valentine’s Read-A-Thon back in February! This event runs from June 7th through June 14, 2013!

The purpose of this event is to get as much reading done as possible while having a little fun on the side! You can participate as much or as little as you like. There are Twitter parties for the socially inclined – book-related challenges for those in need of distraction – and prizes for those who like incentives!

What more could you ask for in an event?

Wicked Wildfire Read-A-Thon Goals

My goals for this event are to:

  • Read and review several books in my TBR pile.
  • Attend the Twitter Parties if possible.
  • Connect with as many book bloggers as possible during the event!
  • Update my Book Review Schedule.

I will be tracking my progress on THIS post throughout the event so tune in DAILY for updates!

    Glad you’re joining us! Good luck with your goals! I find having a review schedule is a must. I have a spreadsheet that probably saves my butt on a weekly basis 😀

    So what book are you starting off with?

      Come Back Dear Sun – a delightful children’s book by Geena Bean and a nice way to ease into the read-a-thon!

      As always, I have quite an eclectic collection covering my desk!

      I think I am going to start out my read-a-thon with some light reads – I’ve been under the weather all week and just feel like kicking back today.

      But – I also started an awesome book called The Possibility Dogs by Susanna Charleson that is already turning out to be quite a moving read!
